Fiscal Year 2015 Public Budget Presentation Thursday
(Boise, ID) – This Thursday, July 17 at 6:00 p.m., the Board of Ada County Commissioners will hear a public presentation of Ada County’s proposed Fiscal Year (FY) 2014-2015 budget, presented by the Ada County Clerk/Auditor/Recorder. The presentation will take place in the Ada County Courthouse Public Hearing Room at 200 W. Front St. in Boise.
This year’s proposed budget amounts to $255 million, including the payoff of the Ada County Courthouse bonds, costing $37M in one-time expense. This payoff comes 7 years early, saving the county and taxpayers approximately $6M in future bond interest that will not need to be paid. Approximately $10M is tied to public safety-related items, such as replacing an outdated jail security system, and initial funding for replacement of the 40 year-old emergency 911 dispatch center, which in the near future may no longer be sufficient to meet the community’s needs.
For further detail on the FY15 Ada County budget, you can view the proposed budget online at www.adacounty.id.gov or via the link below. The media and public are welcome to attend the tentative budget presentation this week to hear details on the entire FY15 budget. Following this week’s budget presentation, the tentative budget will be set on July 22, published on July 29, and the final FY15 budget will be adopted on August 5.
